I got bored the other day during the rain delay. Feel free to add anybody I missed, I'm sure I forgot some former commits, as well as guys playing Independent ball.

He got released from the Marlins organization after the 2010 season.

Is Sam Travis (Indiana) not on a major league roster somewhere? That guy was a stud the same years as Schwarber.

Aaron Bummer has been invited to the White Sox's
spring training, tho I suspect it is a non-roster invite.

I saw Bummer is rated as one of the White Sox top 20 prospects and as a LHP is throwing it in the upper 90s.
